Placed in all three starts to date, KARMADAL has obvious claims despite returning a losing favourite at Kempton last time. The Haggas filly is preferred to J'aspire, third at Windsor back in May. Pharadelle pops over from Ireland where she was beaten six lengths when placed at Limerick but Thai Noon has plenty to find to get involved and Tabla looks pretty exposed back in maiden company for this.
